Sorry I haven't been around too much. The funeral for Opa is Thursday, and then I got a call last night that an old dear friend lost his father, and the funeral is on Friday. I didn't know his father, but I have to go to support him.
Do you do that? Do you judge going or not based on your relationship with the deceased? Or with the survivors? For me it's the survivors. I know that it's important to my BIL that we be there. So I am going. Of course, I would have gone anyways to honour Opa. But it added a level of importance when he said that he wanted "his people" there. I cried at being labeled his people. I just love him so much.
I finally had the opportunity to get him talking last night, so he could articulate what he went through. I find it so therapeutic to talk it out, and I know my sister does. But she has had two opportunities, and I didn't think he had had any. So last night I worked on drawing him out, and getting him to share. I hope it helped in some small way.
I've been not bad with the eating. I've been not great at the pictures, lol. But here are a couple from yesterday:
Lunch was a baked wrap and greek salad with no dressing. It's only veggies and feta.
However, lunch ended up being over 700 calories, so salad was on the menu for dinner! Balance, balance, balance.
I am looking forward to this week being over.
On the bright side, Magda comes back for a couple of days. I'm looking forward to seeing her.
